Good point. They spent precious little enough time on the songs that were actually in rotation at that point, so why pick up this new tune at the end of the tour when you know that the performance will end up being half-assed, mumbled and forgettable?

Right. And too the larger point that just because he has to say a few things that don't amount to kissing somebodys little rock star tushie doesn't necessarily mean he was 'cranky.'
He was involved and making very salient observations about the matters at hand, which I heard no one else doing.
Which had to be the best case scenario given all the alternatives re: Jerry's level of interest and involvement at any given time those last few years.
